Detailed Description

Update

Minglebox.com is India's leading campus and education network with a user base of students and young professionals across the country.

Minglebox.com was started by a group of IIT/IIM alumni with deep business and technology experience, backed by leading global investors. Minglebox.com helps students find the best colleges and courses through online admission help and counselling services. These products are offered across segments like MBA, Engineering, Study Abroad, Vocational and IT courses as well as Bachelor's programmes in various disciplines.

Minglebox.com is ranked the no.1 educational website in India and has the unique distinction of being the only educational site in India's top 150 websites ranked by Comscore* in 2009. Minglebox.com has students from over 250 cities. *Comscore is the world's leading internet traffic measurement agency and its rankings are widely accepted in the internet industry.

It started as a concept similar to Facebook, creating customized networks for people on college campuses. The goal is for each network to be a close knit community, working like a college intranet. As with most other social networking sites, users can share videos, music, blogs, photos and events.

Orkut remains Minglebox's primary competitor as it has become a huge hit in India.
